    \(\bf -(-2)^3\implies -1\cdot (-2)^3\implies -1\cdot (-2)\cdot (-2)\cdot(-2)\implies ?\)

    I think its either -2 or -8 since it will be a negative result right?

    And make sure you count your negatives! :O 2 negatives make a positive, so 4 negatives (which is 2 groups of 2) should also make a positive, ya?
